‘Letter to three wives’

A Letter to Three Wives. United States, 1949 (103 minutes). Director: Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Performers: Jeanne Crain, Linda Darnell, Ann Sothern, Kirk Douglas.

The teacher Mankiewicz delivers an acid X-ray of the North American bourgeoisie, trapped in a web of well-being that hides selfishness, arrogance and half-truths. Three exemplary wives receive a letter from a fourth woman, whose face is hidden from the viewer at all times, announcing her immediate escape with the husband of one of them. Along with the intrigue of the identity of the subject, Mankiewicz creates a dense network of dramatic situations that surrounds characters who feel their personal security cracking, while the film becomes a subtle metaphor for the only apparent emotional integrity of the middle classes.

‘Drag Me to Hell’

USA, 2009 (100 minutes). Director: Sam Raimi. Performers: Alison Lohman, Justin Long, Lorna Raver, Dileep Lao.

Sam Raimi returns to the horror genre, a terrain that, with the exception of the notable Premonition, did not address from the legendary diptych that formed Infernal possession and Terrifyingly dead. Always personal, Raimi makes a hectic and rowdy film, in which an old woman unleashes sorrows and terrors for a bank employee who denies her a mortgage forgiveness. From its first minutes, in which an extensive sequence shines that shows a wild and exhilarating fight inside a car, the film accumulates visual discoveries and funny adventures.

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s first film, after succeeding with his short Handcuffed, Oscar nomination included, is a thriller that threads a sordid plot around a group of subjects who have the gift of dominating fortune.

‘Django unchained’

Django Unchained. USA, 2012 (165 minutes). Director: Quentin Tarantino. Performers: Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio.

It was a matter of time before Quentin Tarantino fixed his gaze on the spaghetti western. True to his disposition as a predator of filmic references, he proposes a vision of the West that is as tongue-in-cheek as it is joking, which partly eliminates dramatic rigor, an always secondary issue for the filmmaker. Tarantino shows his ability to handle the rhythm of the dialogues and flaunts a staging of indisputable power, marked, yes, by his love for visual excess.

After having suffered a car accident, a young woman awakens in a room built underground with a man who claims to have saved her from the end of the world. This is the disturbing starting point of a work that functions as a horror film and also as an allegory of the paranoia of a fearful and alienated society. From the same credits, the film masterfully plays with image and sound, offers an exemplary use of ellipsis and extracts anguish and unease from each image, from each frame.
